Oscar Winning Barry Levinson’s The Bay Get’s UK Release Date!

It’s this time of the year you wonder if certain films shown across the Atlantic will ever make it to the UK. Next Spring Momentum Pictures will bring one of the films to blighty, Barry Levinson’s The Bay

The Bay comes from the team that brought us the horror hits “Sinister” and “Insidious” and the award-winning director of “Rain Man” team up to deliver a stark, disturbing and truly nerve-shredding tale of an ecological nightmare.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, you find out you can’t even drink it! Veteran Hollywood blockbuster director Barry Levinson brings a rare pedigree to the horror genre utilising a variety of footage formats – from mobile phones, TV reports and CCTV to 911 recordings and web cam transmissions – to present a realistic and totally believable shocker. An intelligent and thought-provoking horror movie with enough gore and stomach-churning imagery to satisfy even the most hardened horror fans, The Bay could put you off seafood and even drinking water for quite some time after the credits roll.

The quaint coastal town of Claridge, Maryland thrives on the safe, tranquil and abundant waters of Chesapeake Bay. During their annual Independence Day celebrations, a gruesome plague is unleashed, quickly infecting the residents and turning them against each other. A brutal and harrowing creature feature for the 21st century, “The Bay” graphically chronicles the descent of a small town into absolute terror.

The Bay is directed by Academy Award winning director Barry Levinson (Rain Man; Sleepers), produced by  Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity; Sinister; Insidious), Steven Schneider (Paranormal Activity; Insidious), Oren Peli (Paranormal Activity; Insidious) and rising star Kristen Connolly (The Cabin In The Woods). The Bay is going to be released cinematically and be prepared to be very scared of water when it arrives on 1st March 2013!
